Of Wrinkles and Itchy Legs

My hands are red and painful. My legs are itchy. My hair is dirty. My eyes have circles under them, framed by bags. My forehead looks like a roadmap of wrinkles.

I've been washing my hands so much lately between the plague, the pink eye, and the potty bullshit stuff I've been dealing with that my hands are practically raw. No time to put lotion on after every wash. There's also not much time to lotion up after every shower, hence the itchy legs. The dirty hair? Well, while I can usually fit in a shower, I'm not always able to get shampoo and conditioner happening. The circles and puffiness under my eyes and the wrinkles on my forehead? That's called stress and worry and fear and anxiety. I would love to be able to use some kind of great wrinkle cream but maybe just some good old fashioned xanax will do the trick?!

I see some of my friends talking about days of pampering, but in my world that means diapers, not spa treatments.

So, if you happen to see me with clean hair, know that it's a very big deal.

Today's prompt: I never get to ______ anymore.
